  • Really enjoyed it, very good value. Getting there is a little tricky, I'd recommend hiring a car for the day. Also I'm not sure if they accept card, so bring cash. It can be Euros, Kuna or the Bosnian Currency.
  • Definitely in top 5 places to visit in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The cave itself was amazing, guide speaks english really well, her speech was easy to understand and interesting. There is a concrete path running through the whole cave, so it is easy to walk there. It's a bit cold inside, but you are provided a jacked so it is OK. You are also provided a helmet (because of lower ceiling near entrance). We were told some interesting facts about human fish. Highly recommended to visit!
  • Vjetrenica was really nice place to visit. The guide told interesting facts about the history and geology. The cave's temperature is always around 11 degrees celcius and so it was nice to cool down from the hot day. Wear the provided jacket though.
  • Nice cave, the largest one in BIH. You can visit one long, big passage. The lights are new LED system, tout guides speak English well. Don't forget to visit this cave! And there is a 10 Celsius degree cold inside ❄️
  • This place was amazing! 600m of walkable, smooth path for tourists (you could probably do it in a wheelchair, though it would be difficult). Huge cave system is thought to extend 22km to the sea. Well with the trip and price! Fine for small children.
